Title: Dental Bonding Cost in Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental Bonding Cost in Cosmetic Dentistry
Dental Bonding
  • Tooth bonding or dental bonding uses a special
    tooth-colored resin which is applied to the tooth
    then hardened using a special light. This bonds
    the resin to the tooth either to restore it or to
    improve the appearance of the tooth.

Bonding to Repair Broken or Chipped Teeth
  • Tooth bonding is used in several different ways,
    but is probably most useful for repairing chipped
    teeth. Bonding materials (high-density, modern
    plastics called composite resin) and porcelain
    are more natural in color and can be designed to
    perfectly match the surrounding teeth making it
    difficult to discern there ever was a broken

For what conditions is dental bonding considered?
  • Dental bonding is an option that can be
    considered to
  • Repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used
    to fill cavities)
  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Make teeth look longer
  • Change the shape of teeth
  • Use as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • Protect a portion of the tooth's root that has
    been exposed when gums recede

What is the procedure for having a tooth bonded?
  • Preparation Little advance preparation is needed
    for dental bonding. Anesthesia is often not
    necessary unless the bonding is being used to
    fill a decayed tooth.
  • The bonding process Next, the surface of the
    tooth will be roughened and a conditioning liquid
    applied. These procedures help the bonding
    material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored,
    putty-like resin is then applied, moulded, and
    smoothed to the desired shape. After the material
    is hardened, your dentist will further trim and
    shape it, and polish it to match the sheen of the
    rest of the tooth surface.
  • Time to completion Dental bonding takes about 30
    to 60 minutes per tooth to complete.

What will happen at the initial consultation?
  • During the consultation, participating cosmetic
    dentists will talk to you about the changes you
    would like to make in your appearance. They will
    explain the different options available to you,
    the procedure itself, and its risks and
  • Participating cosmetic dentists will begin with a
    complete medical history and an examination of
    your teeth and gums. They may also take before
    photos and give you specific instructions on how
    to prepare for the procedure.
  • Take this opportunity to ask all the questions
    you have about the procedure. Learning everything
    you can about your options, risks and benefits is
    the key to making an informed decision.

How long does it take?
  • Bonding can be accomplished in one visit except
    in complicated cases. The length of the visit
    will depend on the condition of your teeth and on
    how much repair work you are having done.

Will I experience any pain?
  • The procedure is virtually pain-free although you
    may experience some discomfort during the
    tooth-roughening phase.

What can I expect after dental bonding?
  • You may experience some sensitivity in the
    treated tooth for several weeks after the
    procedure but this should diminish with time.
  • It is important to practice good oral hygiene in
    order to maintain the results achieved by this
    procedure. Follow these steps to care for your
    teeth after bonding
  • Slice hard foods like apples and carrots before
    eating them.
  • Avoid chewing on hard objects like fingernails,
    pencils, or paperclips.

  • Keep your teeth clean by brushing and flossing
  • Use gentle toothpastes that are safe for bonded
    teeth. Ask your participating dentist for
  • Schedule regular professional cleanings by a
    participating dentist or dental hygienist.

What are the advantages of dental bonding?
  • Cost The average cost of dental bonding ranges
    from 300 to 600 per tooth. But many dental
    insurance plans cover most of the cost of
    bonding, particularly when it is done for
    structural reasons or to fill a cavity, says
  • Speed Dental bonding typically requires only one
    office visit. The entire process can be
    accomplished in 30 to 60 minutes per tooth.
  • Ease Anesthesia is usually not necessary, unless
    bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth.
    Compared to veneers and crowns, dental bonding
    also requires the least amount of enamel removal,
    explains Harms.

Disadvantages of dental bonding
  • Bonding material can become stained. Unlike
    crowns and porcelain veneers, dental bonding has
    a tendency to become discolored over time.
    Coffee, tea, red wine, and cigarette smoke can
    stain the material used in dental bonding, making
    it stand out from the rest of your teeth, says
    Harms. To minimize staining, youll need to avoid
    these substances for 24 to 48 hours after bonding
    is first performed.
  • Less durable. Additionally, the material used in
    dental bonding isnt as strong and long-lasting
    as porcelain veneers and crowns. It can easily
    chip. With proper care though, dental bonding can
    last three to seven years.

How do I choose an appropriate dentist?
  • It is very important that you select a dentist
    adequately trained and experienced in this
    procedure. We strongly recommend that you
    consider choosing a participating cosmetic
    dentist. Participating dentists are general and
    cosmetic dentists who are well trained and
    experienced in dental bonding.

What does dental bonding cost?
  • Dental bonding is a relatively inexpensive way to
    repair damaged teeth and make them look like
    new. Cost can range from 100 to 300 per
    tooth, and many insurance plans cover the cost.
